HAMILTON, ON - I am pleased with today’s announcement from Premier Ford that moves the City of Hamilton into Stage 2 of the provincial government's reopening framework. The province is allowing Hamilton to move into Stage 2 of the framework as of Friday, June 19.
As a result, we will be working on a methodical reopening, in line with Provincial guidelines, in order to keep everyone safe and not undo the progress we have made so far. I ask residents to please have patience as we work to make sure our reopening is safe and successful.
I would also like to remind residents to continue to follow public health recommendations including practicing physical distancing, wearing a non-medical mask when physical distancing is difficult to maintain, washing your hands often and staying home when you are sick.
A special thank you to our Public Health and Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) teams, community partners, City staff and everyone in Hamilton for working together to slow the advance of the virus in our community.
